Arlington, VA – Today, ProEnglish published the survey results for the 2014 Congressional and Senatorial candidates.  ProEnglish sent surveys to candidates running for Congress in all fifty states.  The surveys asked the candidates to state their position on six different official English issues.  The responses from the candidates can be found on the ProEnglish website.  ProEnglish does not endorse candidates.

“We’ve received surveys from 27 different states, and from candidates in the major political parties,” said ProEnglish Executive Director Robert Vandervoort.  “We think these surveys will help voters make better informed decisions about the candidates.”

“The issue of official English should be an easy one for every candidate to support.  According to Rasmussen Reports, 83% of Americans say they want English to be our official language.  On virtually no other issue will you find so many Americans, and from so many different backgrounds, in full agreement.”
